Last Month’s Food & Wine featured The Heartbreaking Story Behind The Lost Kitchen about Erin French’s revived restaurant in the restored Freedom Mill. The author was especially charmed by her surroundings:
…Take a quick left on Main Street, and there’s The Mill at Freedom Falls—The Lost Kitchen’s once crumbling, now beautifully renovated home. Cross a narrow bridge over a rushing stream, and you’re there.
The dining room has sanded plank floors, exposed beams and suspended mill trestles. A wall of windows looks out onto the stream and bridge. Upstairs is a school for local kids; downstairs, a stone-walled wine store with bottles carefully curated by The Lost Kitchen’s sommelier
This isn’t the first press the Lost Kitchen has received. In addition to a favorable review in the New York Times last fall, the Bangor Daily News published a story last summer that covered even more of the restaurant’s, and the mill’s, history.
